My friends, you are looking at my new favorite afternoon snack! I’ve honestly been enjoying one of these deliciously creamy Carrot Cake Smoothies daily for a little over a week now… and I’m not tiring of it yet.

In fact, I’ve already steamed more carrots so that I’m fully prepared to make more Carrot Cake Smoothies next week!

Yep, I think it’s that good.

How to make a carrot cake smoothie.

This smoothie showcases some traditional ingredients that I would put in my scratch-made carrot cake such as carrots, sweetened coconut, crushed pineapple, milk, and cinnamon. It’s also made with a frozen banana, orange juice, plain Greek yogurt, and hearty oats.

That shortlist of ingredients creates an eye-catching shake that is chockful of nutrition and a comforting sweet (but not too sweet) flavor!

If you need to keep things dairy-free, simply substitute in your favorite brands of non-dairy yogurt and non-dairy milk in the same portions as the dairy products listed in this recipe.

This smoothie has been a wonderful afternoon pick-me-up for me, and I truly look forward to it when 2:00 p.m. rolls around on the clock. It satisfies my maniac of a sweet tooth and gives me a nutritional boost all while keeping me full until dinnertime. It truly does it all, folks.

My sincere hope is that you will enjoy it too! xo -M

Notes

  • If you have a high-power blender this smoothie can be made using fresh slices of uncooked carrot. If you have a regular blender, steam the carrots and allow them to cool completely before making a Carrot Cake Smoothie.
